Tropical Chic on a winters day

What do you do on a weekend that is cold, wet and windy? Craft of course! The weather the past few days has been miserable, teasing me with moments of sunshine, only to be raining a few minutes later, and the wind, brrrrrr just chilly.

My plan was to have a creation day today, armed with a hot cuppa I went into my craftroom and .... nothing, so I went looking for inspiration, and found it at Freshly Made Sketches.

Wishing for warmer days I picked up the Tropical Chic Bundle, I think this is going to be a "go to" set for me, I adore the flowers and the foliage, and the framelits have many options - die cutting the outline of a stamped image, or cutting foliage from coloured card stock. 

Here's my FMS inspired creation using this gorgeous bundle:

I've altered the design a little by flipping the sketch from portrait to landscape, I also embossed the background like some of the Design Team, love the depth this gave my project. 

My sentiment is from Banners for You and cut with the coordinating Bunch of Banners framelits, the beautiful embossed background is courtesy of Layer Leaves 3D Textured embossing folder

  1. Fabulous card! This is a neat new tropical set and I have that old set from a couple years ago that I have barely used. I need to get it out and use it like this. Thank you for the idea.

  2. Lovely CAS card! Perfect for the FMS challenge.

  3. I love these images with this embossing folder! And I love how you've inked them. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
